"Come, see a man” who knows me, who knows you! That is the good news the Samaritan woman at the well runs to tell her neighbors.

The call to “come and see” is the first step toward discipleship. Jesus is your guide every step of the way as you discern the best path forward. Jesus is the one who knows you—your strength and resolve and your fear and doubt. He offers a personal invitation to you to follow in God’s way. And your answer—your vocation—is particular and specific. No other disciple will be exactly like you. No one else has the exact gifts that you bring.

You may choose religious life, consecrated life, a diocesan vocation, marriage, or other lay commitments. The type of vocation you decide upon is not nearly as important as the quality of your vocation. Does it bring you joy? Does it increase your capacity for love? Does it draw you toward forgiveness and peace? Does it quench your thirst, not just for today but for the long haul?
